Casuarina Senior College students will soon have access to cutting edge science and technology facilities, with construction about to begin on a new STEM centre.
The CSC Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Centre will be the third to be built by the Territory Labor Government, to support growing worldwide demand for skills in these fields.
It follows the $15.9 million science centre opened last year at Darwin High School and the $12.7 million centre at Taminmin College.
Existing, unused classrooms will be repurposed as the new STEM centre, which will offer two new learning areas; a MAKER space for digital printing and laser cutting; a digital room; and a refurbished workshop to support student learning by providing interactive, engaging classrooms that make science and technology learning fun.
Berrimah company Maxcon (NT) Pty Ltd has been awarded the tender and construction is expected to begin soon.
The new STEM centre comes in addition to other recent investments in CSC, including a $940,000 library upgrade, and $200,000 for the installation of solar panels under the Territory Government’s Rooftop Solar in Schools program.
